  • 2019 Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupe facelift spy shots - Image via S. Baldauf/SB-Medien

    Prototypes for various versions of an updated Mercedes-Benz C-Class range have been testing for a while. Only a week ago we saw the updated C63 from Mercedes-AMG. Today, though, we’ve spotted the updated C63 Coupe. This is only a mid-cycle update so the changes will be mild. We’re expecting new internals for the headlights as well as the Panamericana-style grille AMG is slowly adding to its range. Some changes should take place inside, too. Prototypes for the updated C-Class were sporting new steering wheels, plus touchpad controllers in their center consoles instead of the usual...

    2018 Bentley Continental GT spy shots and video

    Bentley’s Continental GT is now one of the oldest models in production, with the original coupe having first appeared on the scene as far back as the 2003 Geneva auto show. Yes, the vehicle has undergone numerous updates since then but the basic styling and underlying platform have continued...

  • Jay Leno drives his 1971 Mercedes-Benz 280SE Coupe
    Jay Leno takes a classic Mercedes-Benz coupe out for a spin

    A classic Mercedes-Benz is a wonderful machine. The cars tend to be rock solid, and they last forever when maintained properly. Jay Leno has one in his collection, and it recently came off a fairly extensive restoration. Leno's car is a 1971 Mercedes 280 SE 3.5 Coupe, and it's a shining example of...

  • 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Widebody first drive
    2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Widebody first drive review: big looks, incremental improvements

    The Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat is very, very fast. The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is even faster. So naturally, rather than calling it a job very well done, Dodge is introducing a middle child, blending the looks of the Demon with the standard Hellcat's powertrain and attaching much larger...

  • Hyundai Vision G (HCD-16) concept
    Trademark filings hint at "GT" badge for Genesis coupes

    Genesis, like most major players in the luxury segment, has opted for the sensible albeit boring alphanumeric naming practice popularized by the German marques. With automakers offering so many models these days, such a naming practice makes it possible for customers to easily and quickly identify...

  • Polestar logo

    Volvo in June said it’s spinning off its in-house tuner, Polestar, into a standalone brand for high-performance electrified cars. Polestar will still tune Volvo cars, under the new Polestar Engineered label, but the brand would also offer its own cars. According to Autocar, the first of Polestar’s standalone cars will be a high-end coupe offering upwards of 600 horsepower. The coupe isn’t expected to be a pure electric model as some have speculated. Rather, it’s expected to be a plug-in hybrid combining an inline-4 with an electric drive system. To keep costs low...

  • 1997 Audi A8 Coupe concept
    Meet the Audi A8 coupe you didn't know existed

    This is another story of "what could have been." Audi had plans to chase down the large, luxury coupe segment near the end of the last century, and its attempt was what you see here. This is the only Audi A8 coupe in existence, and yes it's real. The coupe was a project between Audi and IVM...

    2018 Maserati GranTurismo gets Alfieri-inspired grille

    The Maserati GranTurismo is entering its 10th year on the market but still manages to look as good as the day it debuted. Nevertheless, with a successor likely some years off still, Maserati has decided to freshen up the GranTurismo for the 2018 model year. The most significant change is at the...

    Godsil Manhattan V16: a luxury halo car for America

  • 2018 Audi RS 5
    2018 Audi RS 5 first drive review: green with mean

    Like all animals, humans are subject to various temptations. A salad is healthier than a burger and fries, but the whiff you get within a block of an old-fashioned burger joint is irresistible. Similarly, you shouldn’t buy another project car, but when will you find another like it?...

  • 2018 Mercedes-Benz E400 Coupe
    2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe first drive review: a grand touring value

    When you have an obscene amount of money, you should be driving a grand tourer. I recommend the Aston Martin DB11 or a Ferrari GTC4 Lusso. But what if you're not a sultan, an oligarch, or a tech innovator and still want what a GT can provide? You buy the 2018 Mercedes-Benz E400 Coupe. Priced from...

  • Godsil Manhattan V16 Super-Coupe teased

    It's been over three years since we first heard about the Godsil Manhattan V16 Super-Coupe project, and now it seems we'll finally get to see what this thing looks like. On June 26, Jason Godsil, CEO and founder of Godsil Motorscars, says he'll release images of the luxurious coupe's design. The first teaser image depicting the car's front end has been released, and it appears to have an angular design with angry-looking LED daytime running lights. The latest teaser images give us a glimpse at the Manhattan V16's taillights, marker lights, and show the word Godsil on the front fender in a...

    Infiniti's Q60 Project Black S will wear special-made Pirelli tires

    Sitting at each corner of a production-bound Infiniti Q60 Black S will be Pirelli rubber. Both Infiniti and Pirelli used the previous weekend's 2017 Formula One Canadian Grand Prix as a stage to announce the new partnership.

  • 2017 Honda Civic Si First Drive
    Reliability capped power on the 2017 Honda Civic Si

    When initial specifications began to trickle out surrounding the 2017 Honda Civic Si, there were two courts. One court realized the car would be a blast to drive. The other felt the power ratings were much too low. Experiences may vary per driver, but the Civic Si is still a hoot to toss...

    Rolls-Royce builds the world’s most expensive ‘new’ car

    Rolls-Royce has crafted a one-off car for a customer. Presented at this past weekend’s 2017 Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este in Italy, the bespoke car, dubbed the Sweptail because of its swept rear end reminiscent of the design used by Rolls-Royces of the 1920s, is rumored to have...

    2017 Honda Civic Si first drive: looking the part

    The ascending shift lights dart along the tach, green to yellow to red, before the revs bounce and the 2017 Honda Civic Si stretches its legs in the tawny California desert. As the center-mounted exhaust bellows a convincing growl and a short throw from third gear easily finds fourth, the new Civic...

  • BMW M8 prototype, 2017 M Festival

    BMW M used this weekend’s M Festival held at the Nürburgring to confirm an M8 performance flagship will form part of the new 8-Series range currently in the works. The first member of the new range will be a regular 8-Series coupe. It debuts in 2018 and was previewed on Friday at the 2017 Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este in Italy by an 8-Series concept. The M8 is expected to arrive shortly after the regular 8-Series. At the M Festival, the M division rolled out an actual prototype for the M8.

  • BMW 8-Series Concept
    BMW 8-Series concept revealed, that escalated quickly

    BMW didn't wait long to show fans of the brand that it still could build a big coupe. Days after quietly pulling from sale the 6-Series coupe from the U.S., BMW showed in Italy what's likely coming next. The BMW 8-Series Concept revealed Thursday at Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este on the shores of...

  • HGK BMW M2 features LS V-8 power
    This LS-powered BMW 2-Series is a sideways hooligan

    HGK Motorsport is a Latvian race shop that is churning out some seriously powerful machines, and its focus is on a handful of BMW platforms. The crew over there has a soft spot for the E36, E46, and E92 M3s. Now, though, HGK has a new jumble of Bavaria's finest alphanumerics in its stable: the F22...

  • 2017 Honda Civic Si Coupe
    2017 Honda Civic Si arrives with $24,775 price tag

    Honda has been busy filling out the 10th-generation Civic's portfolio with a sedan, coupe, and the return of the hatchback. While the commonplace variants carry out their sales duty, Honda will spice things up with the introduction of a new Type R and the return of the familiar Si. We now know how...

  • Teaser for BMW 8-Series-previewing concept debuting at 2017 Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este
    BMW to preview new 8-Series with Villa d’Este concept

    Tired of watching Mercedes-Benz launch hit after hit in the high-end segment for two-door cars, BMW is finally ready to join the fray with its own offering—something that’s long overdue. And no, the slow-selling i8 doesn't count. The new offering will be an 8-Series which BMW will...
